Wow! Brilliant video!

Seriously, you made it look easy, and that's the sign of a true craftsman. I am impressed. The result is beautiful.

Thanks for sharing that.

Provenance question (relayed from an email sent to Admin)

Thank you gentlemen, I saw a recent post by Jon Pegler, ( 7-23-2018) where he cites that Ducati engine #'s starting with 114,115,116 , are Spanish built motors. Thank you, I can now lay to rest my uncertainty about my little 250's motor. However, since I last inquired into this issue as to just what...

Re: Prices in Australia

In my non-professional opinion the price is currently a little on the high side for today's market, at least for now (2018) as you might still be able to get a rough condition round case 750 GT rider at that price. With the lack of bidding I think many people agree with me. Still though, I think tha...

250 narrowcase rear axle orientation info needed

I know, horizontal.... But I did not pay attention when I took the old bearings out. I am getting ready to put in a new bearing on the brake drum side of the rear hub. Between the bearings the axle which is shouldered becomes captive. I just realized that the axle is about 9mm longer (0.325 inches) ...

Re: Gray Cables?

I've never seen gray cables on a single, but I do use scooter cables when they fit.

Maybe check scooterworks in Chicago or other vintage Vespa parts sites.

Re: Shopping for front and rear tires

Does anyone know of a US distributor for ME22 tires?

It does not bode well for an American when every website the search engine returns is using the spelling "tyre".

I know they won't break in shipment, but the expense of the shipping could be as much as the tires.

Shopping for front and rear tires

I need a new set of 2.75-18 tires for my 250 narrow case, both front and rear. I'm located in the US. Nine out of 10 online ads I see in 2.75-18 tires are for dual purpose front/rear tires. The one exception I see is for an Avon Street Runner front tire. I'm looking for advice: Should I go with an A...

Re: First Ducati

You could post a picture here. If your Ducati is close to stock then the fenders and bodywork may help forum members to identify the model followed by which years it was produced. If you post the engine serial number, that too may help to narrow the year. We'll also be able to tell if yours is a wid...
